I'm just wondering if there is anyone who has GD for the second (or more) time. When did you get diagnosed the second time? Did you have any symptoms?
I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I have a bad feeling I am going to fail the glucose test my doctor is making me take at 11 weeks.
I'm going to take my blood sugar starting today just to see where I stand.
Your more likely to get it the second time if u had it before... good luck tho!
my mom had it all 3 times. and my OB said that the reason why they test everyone is because there aren't really any signs of having it like there is with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
I went through 3 pregnancies and didn't have it but with my last I had it and it didn't go away. I guess I'm just predisposed to it because of genetics.
I had it with my first I am not pregnant again but I am really praying I wont get it again. My dr told me to loose a bunch of weight before i try to get pregnant again so I lower my chances. But good luck let us know how it goes when you test it today!
Sorry to hear you may have to go through that again. I went through it the first time around too, but was able to easily maintain my levels (usually stayed below 100 or 110 after eating) with just a diet. I'm nervous I will have it in future pregnancies as well...and to have to test earlier, ewww!!! Dealing with it for 10 weeks was hard enough, I couldn't imagine going through 20 or 30 weeks.
Good luck, let us know how you make out!
